The honeymoon’s over – or maybe, it’s been over for decades. Days of passionate intimacy seem like a distant memory, and your marriage just doesn’t have the spark it once did. You’re left wondering: Is this all there is? How can we revive the passion and keep it growing for a lifetime?
There are hundreds of books on communication and on sex in marriage, but none explain how to cultivate romance and live passionately in all areas of life with your spouse.
New York Times bestselling author, international speaker, counselor, popular radio host of “New Life Live,” and founder of Women of Faith, Stephen Arterburn, and his wife Misty, author of several books and devotionals, share the secrets to enjoying lifelong romance.
In The Mediterranean Love Plan, Steve and Misty uncover the seven mysteries of passion from five of the most romantic countries in the Mediterranean: Italy, Spain, France, Greece, and Israel. These countries are known for romance and all that goes with it: great food, amazing art, beautiful parks and public squares, a love of language, and relationships that spark great passion.
These insights from ancient cultures help couples create conditions to build and nurture their own vibrant passion and rich intimacy. Through research, insight, and personal stories, Steve and Misty share easy, practical ways to apply these secrets to your own relationship.
You will see your marriage transformed, burning with a fire that just won’t quit.
